Support a Fair Deal for Duryard & St James with the CIL

Support a Fair Deal for Duryard & St James with the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

What is the CIL?

The CIL is a financial contribution from new developments that goes towards mitigating their impact upon communities.

  • 72% of this payment is placed in a central pot and has been used by the City Council to assist with major projects, such as St Sidwell's Point
  • 8% is used for mitigating the recreational issues arising from new developments on European protected habitats, such as the Exe Estuary, Pebblebed Heaths, and Dawlish Warren
  • 5% is used for administration of the fund
  • and 15% will go to the Community Pot

Since 2019, 12 purpose-built student accommodations have been constructed in Duryard & St James, totalling over £5.7 million. This means we should receive a Community Pot £866,500. However, we have only received £23,850.

Exeter City Council needs to clearly set out how it is engaging with neighbourhoods to match their priorities, including ones set out formally in local plans. The money could be spent on improving recreational, sports, and public facilities, or a new community hub in Duryard.

Duryard and St James deserves better from the Labour City Council.

Add your name below to call upon Exeter City Council to review its Community Infrastructure Policy to greater ensure the needs of communities with new developments, such as Duryard & St James, are addressed.
